Here's a Thriller for You...

I know I have always been a bit strange, albeit eccentric, but this HAS got to take the biscuit…

 

I want to write a crime thriller.

 

Yes!!

 

Though quite why I want to write a crime thriller as opposed to any other thriller I haven’t yet got my head round.

 

All I know is that there are TWO things I want to do.

 

  1. I want to publish excerpts of my diary/journal, which I have been writing since 1988. I have many volumes, and I think it’s time I got it out there for posterity, and run the risk of denying my progeny from having a first-hand look-into their Dad’s life…
  2. I want to write a crime thriller. I wrote one for a creative writing class back in 2000 in university, which my lecturer called close to “Usual Suspects”--but not quite…L

 

Evidently, there’s some work to do, and if this blogging enterprise is anything to go by, writing isn’t a problem as much as the idea for something that sells.

 

Any ideas—Daniel, if you do read this, pls, man, some pointers!!!

 

O, and Portuguesa Nova, I could do with some ideas from you—given your writing style that is capable of spinning a good yarn the moment you start writing:-) Good to see you back—I was there Friday, but computer probs frustrated my attempt to commentL

 

Cheers!

My advice?

Write, write, write somemore.

Then destroy most of it and then write some more.
